G-Unit leader 50 Cent has weighed in on the recent controversy surrounding celebrity groupie Kat Stacks and actor Laurence Fishburne‘s adult film star daughter Montana.
Speaking with radio personality Funkmaster Flex, 50 said Stacks’ character may be the result of a troubled past.
“I really don’t have an opinion of her,” 50 said about Stacks. “I know people who are on the track and they belong on the track. I know people on the track and they’re there because of things that have happened in their lives that sent them there, whether they had a real dysfunctional environment or someone raped them or did something to them that actually got them there. For a personal that psychologically is in a space that she’s in, you would have to have experienced something. She thinks she’s getting something out of sleeping with everybody she can find.” (Hot 97)
Discussing Montana, 50 said critics should not blame her Hollywood father for the career path she chose.
“When you decide you want to be a porn star, no porn star uses their last name,” Fif added. “You would use a new name or what’s her first name? ‘Montana Rye’ I could have helped her marketing-wise. But she used her father’s fame. Let’s say you have a little boy and your son’s gay or your son’s a drug addict, we can’t decide where people’s lives are actually going to go so it’s not really a reflection of Larry Fishburne, the connection goes wild. Immediately, people scream bad parenting but you don’t have control over all of those things and she’s an adult now. So, she makes bad choices, it reflects her.” (Hot 97)
In a recent XXL Magazine feature, Stacks voiced her initial remorse for exposing rap stars.
“When I first made the Internet blog, I regretted it, because everybody stopped talking to me,” Stacks revealed in the interview. “But as I got bigger in time, bigger names and muthaf*ckas in the game, they all started getting at me. It just upgraded my career. Now I don’t gotta go work. I don’t gotta do sh*t. All I gotta do is show up at a [club] and get paid [for appearances] I don’t regret it anymore. The first time I did it, I was like, ‘D*mn, why the f*ck I did this sh*t? Because I was drunk? Just to embarrass muthaf*ckas?’ I didn’t expect to get money out of it. Now these muthaf*ckas keep f*ckin’ with me, so I’m gonna continue to do Kat Stacks.” (The 305)
Last month, Montana inked an open letter describing her passion to begin an adult film career.
“I was the one who reached out to Vivid. [Male performer] Brian Pumper had nothing to do with getting me started. I did my first video with him, but that’s it. I chose Vivid because they are the best in the business and I wanted to go to the top seller. And they have released other movies with celebrity girls like Kendra, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. So, I wanted to go somewhere I knew I would be safe. People have it wrong. Doing porn is not about me becoming famous…it’s about becoming successful. Porn just happens to be the industry I was most interested in, so for critics to say I’m going about it the wrong way they are missing the point. I am making a buzz in the porn industry and in the mainstream, too. It’s leading me to more opportunities, so people can’t say that I’m not going to get anywhere.” (VIBE)
